There was a lot of information spreading on social media spaces linking the spread of COVID-19 to 5G radiation. This rumor was quickly used to justify the destruction of mobile phone masts across the world.
The theory suggested that the launch of the 5G services exposed people to radiation which negatively affected their immune systems that could lead to infection with the coronavirus and ultimately death.
The experts, however, came out to dismiss this theory saying that the protein shell of the COVID-19 virus is incapable of being penetrated by the 5G signals as virus and proteins exist in different forms that do not interact. The coronavirus protein exists in a biological spectrum, while the 5G spectrum exists in an electromagnetic spectrum. Radiation can come into contact with the skin. For example, when one takes a call by placing the phone close to the ear, this exposure is however too low according to the recommended safety levels.
From updated information, the medical experts have verified information on how the COVID-19 is spread. This has reduced the further spread of conspiracy theories. Tech platforms have become more progressive in conquering the spread of false information. There have been renewed calls on people to take up COVID-19 testing. Modern methods to help monitor one’s health is through Docsun’s Mobile App that allows users to scan for their vital signs and know their current health status.
Medical experts have further called on the people to get the COVID-19 vaccine. This will go a long way in reducing the further spread of the COVID-19. The vaccines available include the Johnson and Johnson vaccine, Moderna vaccine, Sputnik vaccine, etc. These vaccines are effective since they can keep one from getting and spreading the virus that causes COVID-19. They also help one from getting seriously ill if you do get the COVID-19.
